Samuel J. Dunham

Head shot

I am a Ph.D. candidate at Vanderbilt University, studying astronomy. I received my A.S. in General Studies in Math and Natural Science from Washtenaw Community College, my B.S. in Astronomy & Astrophysics from the University of Michigan, and my M.A. in physics from Fisk University through the Fisk-Vanderbilt Master's-to-Ph.D. Bridge Program.

My research-related interests span a wide range, but include computer simulations, hydrodynamics, and general relativity. Fortunately for me I found the perfect project on which to work!

My non-research-related interests span an even wider range, but include cooking, being a dog dad to Daisy and Lily (RIP), enjoying the outdoors, and traveling. I am also a big advocate for animal welfare, especially stopping animal cruelty, as well as prison reform in the US.
